Meenakshi’s blog was famous, so when she wrote a book, it became famous too. Are all famous books good ? This book is your answer, its a big huge NO.
There is nothing much to tell you about this book. Only good thing that I found is, that the language is really simple, and good. I tried really hard to find the idea or message or experience that the author is trying to convey, but it ended up in something really vague, like “confusions of a 20 something girl, when she realizes and refuses to accept Â that she is no longer a teenager, but grown up.”
The whole book looks like a movie that was made with no script or whatever, – Director selected some actors, ( modern, pub going, smoking, drinking and dating heroine ? how about that ? ) and started shooting scenes.
As I told you, language is simple, and it sounds fresh. But if you are expecting something with so called “literary Â value”, you will be disappointed. Â Sometimes the language becomes so simple that you feel lke you are in store listening to the sales girl explaining the product, and that’s too boring.
This book will test your patience. I am really really disappointed. I have read her father’s Malayalam novel ( which was brilliantly awesome ) Â 4 or 5 times, does that count ?
Tips : Read only the text on front cover, you are almost done with this novel. There is nothing much to expect from reading the entire thing.
Okay, for Netbook lovers and Android lovers, here is a new video, and yes, this one is from Dell Labs ! So, check it out
Hugo Chavez, the socialist President ofÂ Venezuela, launched a new cell phone on Mothers Day. His first call on the phone was to his mother.
The phone costs $15, and may be is the cheapest phone in the world. Interesting ? hmm , okay, here is something else that will make you go crazy, the meaning of the wordÂ Vergatorio is Penis … shocked ??
I have no clue why he chose that word. He even joked on his TV show saying,Â ”Whoever doesn’t have a Vergatario is nothing,” Â now, that’s what we call CRAZY !!
The phone has a camera, WAP internet access, FM radio and MP3 and MP4 players for music and videos. Fair enough for a $15 phone. Now, we should wait for the review of this phone. Once the review is out, let’s see what’s the future of this phone is. Will this Vergatario phone reach India some day ? a phone with cam, fm, video and mp3, for less than Rs.1000 !!

Sometimes I feel that I have all the time in the world for blogging, ( just that I don’t have enough blogging ideas ).
Then I looked around and found many people who write regularly ( personal blogs maintained by individuals with at least one post a day ) and even blogging superheros like Nikhil who manage multiple blogs with ease ( what’s the magic dude !! ) . So they have something more valuable than blogging time; blogging ideas and the flow.
But there is another group who struggle finding enough time for blogging. yet another group struggling to find ideas ( I am in this group guys !! ) Which group do you belong to ?
Is it easy for you to find time or ideas for blogging ? How do you find post ideas, where you do you save them ?

I know this is too much to ask for now, but, still I am really interested to learn this. Installing Android on netbook/laptop that is.
It may take some more time before we actually see Android on Netbooks, and Laptops etc. But, there are some news here and there about people installing Android on their netbooks and nokia phones etc. I am still searching for an article that explains how to do this. ( if you guys know something of that kind, please leave a comment here )
I find tutorials on how to install Google Android SDK ( well it works only on Linux, or Apple’s OSX as of now !! ) but no luck on finding something about installing Android OS itself.
